Pink Meet Orange

Skin tone comparison of Hugo Lattimore versus Alistair Lattimore when Hugo was 16 days of ageBefore Hugo was born, Claire and I joked about what skin colour or skin tone our baby was going to have.

After much thought and discussion, we agreed that the most likely outcome was orange. At this point in time, you’re probably scratching your heads about orange – it’s quite simple really; I have a pink skin tone and Claire has a yellow tone. If you mix pink and yellow together, you get orange!

As it turns out, we weren’t too far from the truth – though orange wasn’t quite the right descriptor. What I am happy about is that he didn’t inherit my skin tone, as anyone who knows me will attest to the fact that the sun and I do not get along at all.
